Mother’s Day is a time to show love and appreciation for our moms. Keep this recipe in mind to serve up a tasty treat for breakfast for your special mom.

One 18.25 oz. box devil’s food cake mix
One 15 oz. can pure pumpkin

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pour cake mix into a large bowl and whisk to remove any lumps. Add pumpkin and stir until completely smooth and uniform. Note: Don’t add any other ingredients mentioned on the cake box. The mixture will be very thick.

Evenly distribute batter into a 12-cup muffin pan lined with foil baking cups and/or sprayed with nonstick spray.

Cook for 15-20 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean).

Allow to cool slightly and then serve!

Makes 12 servings

Recipe from Hungry Girl

To all the mom’s out there, remember this:

“You will never have THIS day with your children again.
Tomorrow, they’ll be a little older than they were today.
This day is a gift. Breathe and notice.
Smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet and pay attention.
Relish the charms of THE PRESENT.
Enjoy today, Mama.
It will be over before you know it.”
-Jen Hatmaker

Happy Mother’s Day!
